Nate's Actual Birthday

Nate's birthday at home rained and rained. So, we played with all our new presents and enjoyed some fun time at home. Here is the birthday boy's big day. Mommy loves you Nate-- You are my best friend, my "stuck like glue" buddy, and I will never tire of your little hand in mine. Stay little my little. I love you.

The present table awaits!

Nate wakes to his room filled with balloons.
My boys know this happens now and ask for it days in advance :)

How cute is this three year old??

Nate is 3

Well Hurricane Irene made her mark here in New Jersey. We made it through and can finally share Nate's birthday pictures with you. It will take me a few days, but here are a few of the birthday boy. Every morning he asks me, "Mommy, am I still 3?" He wants his next birthday party to come so badly, but I am certainly not ready to have him turn 4.

We made pretzels a couple days before Nate's birthday.... Mommy made Nate a number 3.

Nick made his into a number 6 :)

The boys both got new Yoshi dolls (a Mario character).

Nate loves his Yoshi!

The birthday boy is 3.
